What comes to your mind when you hear the word indulgence? For most, it’s equal to unnecessary extravagance. For some still, it’s an avenue to express oneself and get the most out of what life has to offer. The latter is what Milkmaid, a premium condensed milk brand made with 100 percent pure cow’s milk, chooses to believe.
Seeking to redefine the concept of indulgence, Milkmaid recently collaborated with the country’s dessert virtuoso, Miko Aspiras, to bring this vision to life. And this he did by concocting the dessert version of the passions of two of the city’s most exciting personalities: professional shopper Mika Lagdameo and travel show host, Maggie Wilson.
For instance, the Chai Tea Floral Leches Cake was inspired by Maggie’s love for travel. Here, you can find a variety of flavor cues from several world cultures, touching base on the host’s personal destination faves – from Italy to Japan to India. Perfect for adventurous epicureans, expect the bold and daring to surprise your tastebuds.
Meanwhile, the Tropical Fruit Pastillas Cheesecake is inspired by Mika’s full-fledged devotion for shopping. Like fashion, the dessert is a marriage of the classics paired with a handful of standout elements. Chef Miko likens this creation of his to a little black dress, a must-have in every girl’s wardrobe, coupled with accessories to make a bold but classy statement.
These desserts will be available for a limited time only at Le Petit Souffle from September 28 to 30, so make sure to grab them while they last.
However, fret not if you miss these dates, because you can surely recreate your passion and find your indulgence with Milkmaid condensed milk. Go ahead and make the kitchen your oyster with this weapon in hand. You deserve this!
